. the president is facing a fierce foreign policy attack from romney right now. is this part of the romney campaign reboot we've been hearing a lot about? >> it absolutely is, zoraida. the bumps in the road quote from "60 minutes" have handed the romney campaign an opportunity to talk about something other than his tax returns or that fund-raising video where he yet sized 47% of americans. this has taken over the economy has the main thrust of the romney campaign message. they're hitting obama hard on this. for example, listen to what paul ryan, romney's running mate, had to say about obama's foreign policy yesterday while campaigning in ohio, zoraida. >> i think the president on too many occasions has deferred our foreign policy leadership to the u.n. security council, to the u.n., this means russia and china get to veto what we want to do. why do we want to give them that kind of clout over our national security interests? >> the goal here is to paint president obama as projecting weakness. ryan yesterday compared the situation in the middle east to tehran in 1979. you know, calling to m
. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama sparring yesterday, that is how the headlines played. nicholas burns will be coming to us live from boston to take your calls. the former undersecretary of state for political affairs in the bush administration. the speech that we were referring to comes up at 10:30 a.m. eastern time. this will be at the un general assembly. we will stay with several other peaches -- speeches throughout the morning. ronald, good morning. caller: good morning, c-span. lots of republicans call in without looking at all the facts. i do not agree with obama's policies, i am a democrat, but i do agree with the fact that he is making a change, a definite change. mitt romney is not the candidate to be the next president. if he does, this country will turn into what he wants it to turn into, and that would be a business. which is not what this country is. thank you. host: more reaction to the speeches this morning from the editorial page of "the wall street journal." they have this headline, quoting the iranian president -- host: reaction from "the new york tim
a more effective version. as we carry on george w. bush's policies. on israel i think some of the romney charges are accurate. the fact is that the president has gratuitously alienated the prime minister of israel on an issue frankly was not relevant, which was settlements. and i don't think, unlike bill clinton, and george w. bush, that this president has the kind of emotional sensitivity that think is required to create some measure of partnership with the israelis even though netanyahu is a difficult guy. on syria, look, let's be clear. we're coming off the two longest wars in american history. the last thing we need is another military adventure that isn't thought through very clearly. on iran, no matter who is president we have got big trouble coming. israelis rightly need to figure out a way to prevent iran from enriching uranium. the question is, whether or not you can do that short of war? and right now, neither barack obama nor mitt romney, nor benjamin netanyahu have answers to that. so --. >> brought us through some very important regions in the middle east and it is such a bi
clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported as bill clinton said all they're suggesting when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. >> now, the president also visited here in nevada, one of his local campaign offices with volunteers. he said the sessions have been so intense that it feels like homework to him, almost like cramming for a final exam. >> bill: republicans are not giving up. six electoral votes. everyone is important, right, ed? >> that's right. some of mitt romney's key surrogate have been here shadowing the president while he does debate prep. yesterday it was ann romney. i saw matt romney was appearing with marco rubio, one of the rising stars from florida. he's here to help turn out the hispanic vote in navy nevada. i sat down with him for an exclusive one on one. he said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >
to say the president's policies have failed or does romney need to layout in terms that americans can understand what he would do to bring this debt and deficit down? >> i think you've hit the nail on the head, he must spell out what he's going to do about this huge problem. in my opinion, what he must do is spell out how he will grow america's economy. we must grow at at least a 4% rate. if we can do that we raise the level of employment, we raise more money in taxes, we cut the deficit and if we have a long-term plan to deal with our spending, and i stress long term, that is an answer to our problems. essentially mr. romney has to tell the world how will he grow america's economy compared to the miserable rate of growth that we've had for the last three and a half years. >> reporter: it's going to be an interesting debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time
not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our econom

the president on foreign policy, right? >> they are. both mitt romney and paul ryan are making the case that the president has been unclear, lacks transparency, and seems to be reluctant to refer to the attacks in libya as terrorism. they further distance themselves, they didn't actually buy into senator john barrasso's assertion that it's a cover-up, but they're clearly upset to see they see the whole thing as further illustration of the president's inannual to assert the u.s. leadership and strength clearly around the world. watch. >> the white house and the president are continuing not to admit what their own admission is saying and i think it's pretty clear that they haven't wanted to level with the american people. look, we expect candor from the president and transparency. and he continues to refuse to acknowledge what is said by the other members of the administration. this was a terrorist attack. we were attacked apparently by al-qaeda and it's a very troubling development. >> this is part of the story of when we project weakness overseas by gutting the military, with the presid
to be increasing his lead over mitt romney. is that because at heart voters don't really vote on foreign policy, or is it because they don't think romney is any more credible than the president on foreign policy matters? >> well, actually, gregg, if you start looking closely at some of those interim polls -- internal polls, if you start looking specifically at the question about job approval on handling of national security and foreign policy issues, over the last couple of weeks president obama's numbers have really steadily dropped -- gregg: but only 4% say they vote on such matters. >> well, that may be the case, but it is an overall picture when voters go to the polls. we understand we're in a war whether we want to see it clearly or not, we are in a war, and we're not just voting for an economic steward or president, we're also voting for a commander in chief. there was a brand new national bloomberg poll released today, gregg, that actually shows governor romney leading president obama on the issue of terrorism by six points. gregg: julie, we know now that within 24 hours of this 9/11 att

that and start talking about the policies. the policies are ones where i hope that governor romney is able to point out the things that president obama has said that, if the economy doesn't get better, if jobs don't get better, he doesn't deserve a second term. we still have those issues in ohio and pennsylvania, where although ohio has improved some of its unemployment, we still have concerns about manufacturing, about steel, about health care issues, about energy, which are grave concerns in both of those states. and they have to be addressed by both candidates. >> right. and this memo, by beth myers, senior adviser, highlights some of that which you just said. but she says things like, he's a universally acclaimed public speaker, he has substantial debate experience, he's a uniquely gifted speaker. all speaking about president obama. the memo goes on to say that he's been in eight presidential debates compared to -- which i guess would be five with hillary clinton and three with -- with john mccain. but this, of course, would be the very first debate for -- for governor romney. the cyni

of college today can't find a job or a college level job. on both fronts, this president's policies have not worked for the young people of america. >> their first debate happens on wednesday. the romney team is downplaying expectations. romney advisor beth myers distributes this memo explaining why the president is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president will use his ample rhetorical gifts to attack romney. obama won the debates against john mccain if 2008 by double digits. it is not just the romney team that is trying to lower expectations. check out what obama's senior campaign advisor said recently. >> look, mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. he even bragged that he was declared the winner in 16 of those debates. so i think in that sense having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts
policies will make life better for american families. >> reporter: romney has had trouble getting that message across. the obama campaign is far outspending him in advertising and swing states and the media conservatives say is bias against them and in our interview romney declined to take what would be an easy shot. >> do you think the mainstream media is in the tank for president obama? >> we have free press and they're able to provide their perspectives based on their beliefs. there are people more on my camp and a lot of people more on his camp and i don't worry about that. >> reporter: campaigning wednesday in ohio, president obama had no trouble being critical of his opponent and evening converting a verbal misstep to an attack on romney. >> i want to see us export more jobs -- export more products, excuse me. i was i was channeling my opponent there for a second. >> reporter: now the president is out with another new ad today and it looks almost like he's trying to one-up romney. romney had a new ad yesterday where he's talking directly to voters, making his case and today

of ideological divergence between romney and obama. those are the two critical issues here. on foreign policy generally the president has had an advantage. somewhat unusual for a democrat. seen more capable handling foreign policy. his job approval have been better than ratings on domestic policy. but with netanyahu raising the question -- with the differences being made so visible by netanyahu's own visibility, the question for jewish support in a couple places that could matter. it's not inconceivable given the arguments from the israeli prime minister. >> they're not going to meet face-to-face. they're both obviously here in the united states. but there will be a phone call tomorrow. what's the political fallout from this decision that someone made that the president should not get together with netanyahu during these final weeks of this election? >> well, look, relationships are fraught between president obama and netanyahu as they were between clinton and netanyahu. netanyahu and his view of the world and what it takes to make israel secure is closer to a neocon republican view of what i

against him. the military, i believe, officers 90% voting against president obama, voting for mitt romney. they know what's happening in the military. massive cuts happening. because of the president's policies, not because of the congress. they shouldn't have agreed to the sequestering, but the president is not fixing it. he already had the gates cuts in the hundreds of billions of dollars, destroying the pentagon, withdrawing from iraq, running away from afghanistan on a date certain withdraw time lime that's encouraging the taliban. i didn't talk much about foreign affairs and threatening the benefit packages which is why the veterans signed up for and deserve it. i think they'll vote against him. finally, the jewish vote, i trust medved, trust them both, and they told me in the entire adult life they never saw the jewish-american vote so leans towards voting for republican in such strong numbers. there's one word "israel" written all over it. president obama is hose still to israel. left benjamin netanyahu in the basement, say call me if something changes, did not treat him like the b

[ laughter ] yeah, that was my reaction. butches in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. >> romney really taking any chance he can to politicize these attacks. the white house's jay carney responded to romney's remark yesterday calling it a desperate attempt to find the political advantage and in this case, it is profoundly offensive. today at the u.n. assembly, president obama plans on addressing a wide range of foreign policy issues denouncing both the violence in the middle east and the anti-islam film that sparked some of the protests. he'll also give a renewed warning to iran to put a stop to its nuc
